Commissioned to design/create a character based on input from a customer. It's a Melodie from the StarWars universe, which seem to be mermaid types of folk? I know nothing about them but they sure are neat.

I love the sensual strength of her tail, the thoughtful costume and anatomy.  Her expression is indeed fascinating, the tech adjuncts are interesting and rare--A Favorite!  Great pose.

This is a striking piece of work that really shows the tremendous growth of your skills as an illustrator, but also the marvellous imagination you have when rendering a character within another universe.  Your take on the character as both a mermaid and within the Star Wars universe is a admirable concept that certainly shows how you can bring two forms together and create a piece such as this.  The anthropomorphic use of the tail and fins is approached gracefully, using a suitable blend of tones and highlights to make it feel coated in a shine and bring across the graceful curves/movement of their lower half.  Your anatomy design of the upper half has also shown a tremendous amount of your talents and skills when composing believable characters and making them feel much more stylised than a mere drawn character.  Along with the colour palette, you have defined the form and highlights of the her body with such dedication and details that really show the love and patience you have to make them stand out with pride.

I know this is an old comment but I had to come back and ask why her age mattered exactly?
DannyAndYoko's avatar
To favourite, I only wanna fav adult girls XD

She'd be at least 20. since she's undergone the Changing ceremony to become an Elder (Before the Changing Ceremony, Melodies are land dwellers with legs)
DannyAndYoko's avatar
Changing ceremony?! Legs?!
Why?! I hate it when merpeople suddenly sprout legs magically or otherwise... :(

Well atleast she's an adult ^^
